#TeamKris launches the official music video for “Beautiful Mess” today
Bulgaria’s entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, “Beautiful Mess” by Kristian Kostov, premieres today with an official music video aired on the Bulgarian National Television, Channel 1 (BNT 1). Shortly after that, the video will be made available on Virginia Records’ official YouTube channel at 08:00 pm (UTC +3). With its lyric video having over 1.4 million views, the song is hyped by both bookmakers and fans alike.
The much anticipated official music video is directed by the award winning Bulgarian director Liusi Ilarionov. “Beautiful Mess” is the second project Liusi and Kristian work on together, after the smash hit “Vdigam Level” that scored 12 weeks on #1 on the Official Chart for Bulgarian Music (BG Top 100). The music video concept was developed by choreographer and creative director Milen Dankov known for choreographing Kristian’s debut single “Ne si za men” (“You Got Me Girl”).
The creative concept circles around the idea of love being the ultimate survival tool in the world of chaos and insecurities that we live in. The artistic visuals and epic stunts in the video picture a “beautiful mess” eventually resolving into harmony and hope for the future. This idea will be the core of the staging concept, multimedia, sound and lighting design for Kristian’s performance in Kyiv in May.
The video making took over 20 hours of shooting with 35 dancers involved in the stunts, an array of beautiful animals including a rare breed Friesian horse who also stared in the epic blockbuster movie “300”. The video also features a “kuker” – a shaman-like character, part of an ancient Bulgarian tradition, dating back from the B.C. era that is believed to help banish evil and restore the harmony in the world.
Kristian’s pre-Eurovision tour starts a day after the official video premiere with key performances on the following dates:
Apr 2nd – London, UK (pre-Eurovision’s launch party)
Apr 4th – Tel Aviv, Israel (pre-Eurovision’s launch party)

Apr 8th – Amsterdam, The Netherlands (pre-Eurovision’s launch party)
Apr 15th – Madrid, Spain (pre-Eurovision’s launch party)
Kristian will perform at #16 in the 2nd Eurovision semi-final on May 11th with the Grand Finale scheduled for May 13th in Kyiv, Ukraine.
